Tray of Christmas Cookies

These cookies are perfect for holiday gift giving. I love to add this recipe to my cookie trays. When deciding which cookies to make, I always try to select varying size and colors to make not only a delicious tray, but one that is also pretty. The dark chocolate color works well to help divide similar colored cookies.

A Note About IngredientsReese's Peanut Butter Chips

When shopping for cookie ingredients that will be used as gifts, I always try to use finer quality ingredients, not only for flour and baking cocoa, but especially for any baking chips that are needed, as in this recipe for chocolate chips (Nestle, Ghirardelli, or Hershey’s) and peanut butter chips (Reese’s).

Also, you’ll want to use real vanilla extract, as it really does make a difference in your baking.

 

Instructions for Making This Recipe

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Gather your ingredients so that you have everything close at hand on the counter or table. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.

In a small bowl, combine all-purpose flour, baking cocoa, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter, sugar, and brown sugars. Mix in large eggs and vanilla extract.

Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in peanut butter chips and chocolate chips. Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto prepared baking sheets.

Bake in preheated oven for 10-12 minutes until centers are set. Cool on wire racks. Makes 3-4 dozen.
